It’s not too late to join me for a glittering evening of inspiration and delight at the Woodstock Opera House in Woodstock, Illinois. On Thursday, November 17, for one night only, I’ll be sharing my very best secrets to easy, chic decorating and entertaining that will dazzle friends and family from Thanksgiving all the way through New Year’s! It’s part of the historic Creative Living Series, sponsored by the Woodstock Fine Arts Association. Past speakers include Martha Stewart, Maya Angelou, Colin Cowie and, my personal favorite, Dr. Joyce Brothers! From the front door to the fireplace mantle, intimate gatherings to lavish parties, get the inside scoop on how to celebrate the season in style! Tickets are $60 each and worth every hard-earned penny, folks—and that’s a promise. Oh, and did I mention the decadent spread of hors d’oeuvres and desserts before the event? Fancy things like Peppered Beef Tenderloin and Pumpkin Cheesecake Rounds. There’s wine, too. Lots of it. So what are you waiting for? Call 815.338.5300 for tickets or visit woostockoperahouse.com. Hope to see you soon, everyone!
